Total Returns



Investment results shown represent historical performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment returns and principal values fluctuate with changes in interest rates and other market conditions so the value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original costs. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data shown.

Where gross and net expense ratios differ, Principal Management Corporation has contractually agreed to limit the investment option's expenses. Differences also may be due to Principal Management Corporation's decision to pay (through the same dates) certain expenses that would normally be payable by the fund. Returns displayed are based on net total investment expense.

Barclays Credit 1-3 Years Index is composed of publicly issued U.S. corporate and specified foreign debentures and secured notes that meet the specified maturity, liquidity, and quality requirements. To qualify, bonds must be SEC-registered.

The Short-Term Bond Fund merged into the Short-Term Income Fund effective July 23, 2010.

The risks associated with derivative investments include that the underlying security, interest rate, market index, or other financial asset will not move in the direction the Investment Adviser and/or Sub-Advisor anticipated, the possibility that there may be no liquid secondary market, the risk that adverse price movements in an instrument can result in a loss substantially greater than a fund's initial investment, the possibility that the counterparty may fail to perform its obligations; and the inability to close out certain hedged positions to avoid adverse tax consequences.

Fixed-income and asset allocation investment options that invest in mortgage securities are subject to increased risk due to real estate exposure.

Fixed-income investment options are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. Neither the principal of bond investment options nor their yields are guaranteed by the U.S. government.
